·

Game one of Friday night's volleyball match against the No. 9 Ohio State Buckeyes saw a hard-fought OSU lead at 13-9, only to have the Hoosiers claw back to a 25-24 deficit, before the Buckeyes wone the game, 30-27. Such was the weekend for the Hoosier women's volleyball team.

Forwards step up, lead Hoosiers to victory

·

In the closing minutes of Friday's game, senior guard Tara Jones stood tall with her back to the basket and blocked a desperate shot by the Premier All-Stars' Tez Kraft. Kraft is listed as an inch shorter than Jones, but at that moment Jones towered over the former University of Massachusetts forward.

Big Ten televised games decrease

·

After seasons of constant television coverage, the men's basketball team will take a hit this season. And we have the economy to thank, IU Media Relations Director Jeff Fanter said. Seven of IU's first 12 games -- including two exhibition contests -- will not be televised.

Spartans rivalry provides chance for revenge

·

It might not be the best team the Hoosiers have faced this year, and when the 2001-02 hockey season is said and done with, it certainly wouldn't have been the most important game the Hoosiers played this year. But rest assured, there are more than a few IU players who have Saturday night's match against Michigan State at the Frank Southern Center circled on their calendar.

Hoosiers have 'nothing to lose' at invite

·

The women's tennis team is preparing for battle this weekend at the Notre Dame Invitational in South Bend. The Hoosiers will join Notre Dame, Texas A&M and Arizona in matches that only count towards individual records, not team records. "The big thing we're looking forward to this weekend is getting to play against good nationally ranked teams, that we normally don't get to play second semester," coach Lin Loring said. "It's got to be some of our best competition of the year."

Team seeks redemption at Big Tens

·

The men's tennis team is hoping to improve its performance this weekend at the Big Ten Singles Championship in East Lansing, Mich. Coach Ken Hydinger said he was not pleased with the team's performance there two weeks ago at the Regional Championships. "We lost a lot of matches, for one thing," Hydinger said. "The objective of competition is to win. As you want your team to grow, you want to have successes. You can grow in ways; your conditioning is better, your shot is better.

Hoosiers to face exhibition foe

·

The women's basketball team could walk away with an exhibition triumph at 7 p.m. today at Assembly Hall if the opponent shows the same form it has displayed all week. Two other Big Ten teams have overwhelmed IU's foe, Premier All-Stars, in the last five days. Michigan State knocked off the touring team of former college stars 93-74 Sunday. Penn State led its entire game against the All-Stars, winning 78-68 Wednesday night without the Nittany Lions' best player, Rashana Barnes.

The women's volleyball team brings competition back home this weekend as it faces Ohio State today and Penn State Saturday. Previously this season, the Hoosiers lost to both nationally ranked teams on the road.

Team relaxes before battling

·

With the best record in the Big Ten, the men's soccer team earned a bye into the second round of the conference tournament this weekend, which will take place at the McClimon Soccer Complex in Madison, Wis. The No. 4 Hoosiers (12-3-1, 6-0) will have an opportunity to relax Thursday while Michigan and Wisconsin battle for the right to meet them Friday at 2 p.m. for the semi-final match. Senior goalie Colin Rogers said although the bye is a benefit, the team hasn't forgotten last year's tournament, in which they lost to Ohio State.

Tournament success may depend on 'now veteran' freshmen

·

With head coach Jerry Yeagley returning a steady group of players from last year's College Cup team, it was unclear what kind of impact IU's heralded recruiting class would make in their first season. Now with the regular season in the books, there is no question that the freshmen will have a large role if IU is to make it through the Big Ten Tournament and to their fifth consecutive College Cup. "We have a lot of talented young players," Yeagley said. "Those freshmen are now veterans with a season under their belt so we don't expect them to make freshman mistakes any longer. These are guys who have played at a pretty good level before and hopefully won't be in awe."

Seniors reflect on career, prepare for last dance

·

Some may look at the four Final Four appearances and two national championships the men's soccer team has produced during the past four years and speculate that the squad's senior class must be spoiled rotten. But backs Josh Rife and Ryan Hammer, midfielders Bobby de St. Aubin and Tyler Hawley and goalie Colin Rogers have paid their dues, and they do not take anything for granted. "What makes this group (of seniors) unique is that all five of them had to prove themselves here," head coach Jerry Yeagley said. "They didn't come in as stars."

Varied training methods unite runners

·

Different runners specialize in different distances and events. But Coach Judy Bogenschutz said she is seeking a balance on her cross country team. "First thing I tell all of them in the fall is that they are 5K and 6K runners," Bogenschutz said. "They have to say that they're running this distance today and they have to run it well." Sophomore Audrey Giesler is one of the middle distance runners. She also said she tries to separate the two seasons. "I have to have the mentality that I'm a cross country runner now and not worry about track." Giesler said.

Team finishes 3rd in tourney

·

Playing in their fourth and final tournament of the fall, the Hoosiers posted their top finish at the Pine Needles tournament, which concluded Tuesday. After placing fourth in all three of their previous tournaments, the Hoosiers moved up a spot, finishing third. But coach Sam Carmichael said he saw room for improvement. "I think we had the same play we've had all fall, very inconsistent," Carmichael said. "Having to count an 80 the first round and an 82 the second round was just really hard on our scores. If I looked at the scores, I'd have to say we're not playing as well now as we were at the first of the year."
